In 2011, the Lord brought together a group of parents who shared the convictions that education is discipleship and that the Lord requires Christian fathers to provide their children with educations where the truth of Christ reigns in all areas of life — including all academic subjects (Deut. 6; Eph. 6). These families became convinced of the efficacy of the Classical Christian approach through reading Douglas Wilson’s books Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning and The Case for Classical Christian Education, as well as first-hand experiences with Classical Christian schools in other areas. Finding no such schools in the Twin Cities southwest metro, they determined through prayer and glimpses of God’s providential hand that it was His will for them to start Agape Christi Academy whose doors opened in 2013 in Eden Prairie.
